Storm Releases Roster

July 17, 2012, 10:14 PM by Jim Madalinsky

Storm Releases Roster

The Sioux Falls Storm made some waves Tuesday by releasing all but two players just days after winning the IFL Title.

Storm owner Todd Tryon told me tonight the Storm controlled the players' rights through October 1 but let them go early in order to pursue other options with the league and team in flux.

Teams have until July 31 to commit to playing next year in the IFL and Tryon says the Storm roster, as it stood, may have caused teams to consider dropping out of the league.

"I just want them sitting back wondering 'What the heck is Sioux Falls doing?'" Tryon said.  "They do not appreciate how high we have set the bar. There are teams that, if we have our roster in tact, that will not commit to play next year."

If the Storm is still a member of the IFL after July 31, the team will then begin to resign players to the 2013 roster. That includes quarterback and three-time MVP Chris Dixon. Korey Williams and Dan O'Keefe are the only players currently signed.
